In the processing environment, powders often appear to exhibit variable flow behavior, which can be the cause of significant inefficiency in the form of unplanned shut downs or compromised product quality. However, the reality is that powder flow properties are influenced by a diverse array of parameters from air and moisture content to particle size, shape and surface charge.  Figure 1. The new...

By integrating two different light sources into a single instrument, this company unites the functionality of both a near infrared and blue particle sizers. The Multiwavelength LUMSizer 65x is designed for the fast characterization of manifold...
November 1, 2012
The new Zetasizer Nano ZSP is a high-specification dynamic light-scattering system that delivers unique protein-characterization capabilities in a single, easy-to-use instrument. The instrument enables...

In the chemical process industries (CPI) it is often necessary to verify material specification at various points in the process. In that effort, it is usually impossible — or at the very least impractical — to measure the whole production. Instead, small samples must be extracted from a parent population. Such is the case in particle size characterization of bulk solids, process streams and...
March 1, 2012
Rotating machines, such as pumps, compressors, gas turbines, steam turbines and electric motors, play crucial roles in most chemical process industries (CPI) facilities. Increasingly, advanced condition monitoring is being used to improve the operation and maintenance of these workhorse components. The use of well-designed condition-monitoring systems, predictive-maintenance strategies and failure...
January 1, 2012
This company has extended its rheometer accessory range to support ultraviolet (UV) curing cell requirements. With common oscillatoric shear methods, it is often difficult to...
December 1, 2011
Predominantly used in the industrial diamond industry up to now, the ShapeSizer is now being commercialized for a wide range of applications. The new ShapeSizer has a...
November 1, 2011
With an extended dynamic range that spans 0.1 to 3,500 microns, the Mastersizer 3000 laser-diffraction particle-size analyzer delivers precise wet and dry...
October 1, 2011
To confidently design, operate and troubleshoot solids-handling processes, engineers need to characterize powder flow in ways that relate to in-plant behavior. Universal powder testers provide the multi-faceted characterization that is necessary to reliably predict operational performance. This article examines the data that such instruments generate, and discusses their practical application. While many...
October 1, 2011
The new LUMiReader PSA instrument allows, for the first time, the determination of the volume-based particle-size distribution for emulsions and suspensions, without knowing the...
September 1, 2011
  Over 1,000 exhibitors from all over the world will fill six halls at the Nuremberg Fairground for Powtech/TechnoPharm 2011 (October 11–13). Held every 18 months, Powtech — the International Trade Fair for Mechanical Processing Technologies and Instrumentation — is the meeting place for representatives of many sectors of the chemical process industries (CPI), including chemicals and...
May 19, 2011
Based on 20 years of supporting particle research and manufacturing, the FBRM G Series has been completely redesigned, making it easier to understand, optimize and control particle and droplet distributions in realtime. The FBRM G400 and G600...
March 28, 2011
The latest release of EDEM, Version 2.0, is said to set a new benchmark in particle simulation modeling software. EDEM 2.0 is now the fastest and most-highly parallelized discrete-element-modeling...
March 28, 2011
The SST Sampling Collection consists of a portable case containing eight fundamental sampling devices, made in stainless steel and Teflon, to collect liquids, powders...
March 28, 2011
Launched last year, the Morphologi G3 high-sensitivity particle characterization system delivers information about both particle size and shape. Now, the addition of a statistical...
March 28, 2011
Three new options have been developed for the Inline Particle Size sensor IPP 70, making it easier to use in the regulated pharmaceutical industry. Option 1, the Verification Kit, is...
March 28, 2011
The FPT-855 Near-IR Transmission Probe features an integral heating jacket that virtually eliminates the occurrence of fouling due to condensation of product on the probe surfaces. FPT-850 near-IR, visible and ultraviolet transmission...
March 28, 2011
In December, this firm introduced a comprehensive portfolio for the petrochemical industry that enables analyses of crude oil through refined products, such as bitumin. The firm offers a range of accessories for its rheometers...
